Strip #56 is based loosely off my own life. Like Nicholas, I grew up without a computer, despite being part of a generation where everyone else had one. (Even elementary school required typed reports. *dies*) My family finally got one when I was halfway through high school, but that was only because my grandpa gifted it to us. There aren’t enough characters out there with this kind of history, and the narcissistic ones tend to be rich on top of that, so having this be part of Nicholas’ character seemed like a good opportunity to do something different!
